Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: We are a family with 3 teenage children. we live in Cambridge with our labrador dog Saffron.

Why the Owner Chose Kalkan:
Villa Vanilla is a very special place for us as a family - we fell in love with Turkey, the wonderful friendly people in Kalkan and the spectacular views over the mediterranean. So our villa was designed and built for us to provide a very comfortable home from home which we love to share with other people. Our villa is set in large gardens with olive, lemon and orange trees and benefits from cooling breezes from the hills above. Our has been designed to provide a luxurious standard of comfort - marble floors throughout with simple and stylish furniture. The kitchen is very well equipped with a large American style fridge and a range of equipment for cooking the fresh organic produce from the local market,

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
We fell in love with so many aspects of Kalkan and decided to build our own mediterranean home. Just a few highlights that made us choose Villa Vanilla : the unobscured views over the bay of Kalkan, the wonderful warm, welcoming local people who have become our friends (we have been to 2 local weddings), the unspoilt coastline and beaches (Patara is 10 mins and 18 kms of sand with one rustic cafe) and my favourite Kapatus beach (5 mins) has clear tourquise sea and the best beach in the world (and I have travelled to all continents apart from Antarctica!!). Stunning unobscured views over the bay of Kalkan and upto the Taurus mountains. Our villa is very quiet as is set in one of largest gardens in Kalkan with an olive grove to one side of the property. Simple luxury stylish design of decor, finest quality egyptian cotton bedding and towels. A back up generator should the power fail (few villas in Kalkan have their own generators) . Beautiful pool with views over the med set in a large mediterranean garden. Life does not get much better than spending time in Villa Vanilla as our guests will tell you!!
